Well here it is: a Ledger hardware wallet full of shitcoins poses a security risk to your BTC holdings: monokh.com/posts/ledger-app-is

Not really surprised. More code = more chances for vulnerabilities.

Many links later, I'm somehow reading articles from the 'Contemporary Review' published by Strahan & co ltd in 1882. Some of it is really quite fascinating, life was very different, but also kind of the same.

This is one editorial I'm reading through: archive.org/stream/contemporar
In many places it calls into question the veracity of information that was acted on, the potential influence of translators, and the abuses occurring therein. Topics still relevant today.

Youtube is offering me a paid-version-with-no-ads subscription when I go to their website.

How much do I have to pay to just opt out of all Google's surveillance tech though?

It’s 2020 and I’m still reading posts from bcashers, claiming that RBF is a ‘vulnerability’ that allows easier doublespending 🤦🏼‍♂️

Is it possible to copy the chainstate folders from a node running on OSX to a node running on linux (rapsbian)? Or would there be compatibility issues?

(I'm setting up a pi to run btcpayserver, it would be nice to skip the IBD if possible)

mfw when I boot raspbian-lite, and then look down at my desk and see that I plugged a mouse into the pi

😑 😅

Found that other tool... turns out I still had it open in the sea of tabs 😅

Blockchair explorer has released a ‘privacy-o-meter’.

Haven’t looked at it in detail yet, but my first impression is.... what a terrible name 🤨

Here’s the announcement on reddit:

Which isn't to say that a person in Epictetus' time wouldn't have also been under a constant barrage of information from their surroundings, but I think the current paradigm is different in the way that the systems of media/information dissemination have been fine-tuned to our biases, to maximize attention-grabbing potential like never before. The exact sort of thing the stoic philosophers considered evil: an appeal to emotion, an erosion of self-discipline. I don't think they would like it.

"If a person gave your body to any stranger he met on his way, you would certainly be angry. And do you feel no shame in handing over your own mind to be confused and mystified by anyone who happens to verbally attack you?"

Intriguing quote from the stoic philosopher Epictitus (50-135 AD), it frames mindfulness in an interesting way. I wonder what he would think of the contemporary internet-media-paradigm, wherein your attention is under a constant onslaught of information and opinion.

I just looked at reddit.com/r/bsv for the first time.

...is this satire? I'm confused, I genuinely expected it to be a sub full of bsv evangelists, but instead it seems like most posts just make fun of CSW.

Is there any bsv 'community' out there? I've honestly been confused about it for a while, but haven't really cared to dig in deeper. When the bch/bsv split happened, I couldn't help but think 'who actually cares?'. But apparently some people do, or at least are paid to? Hm

This is a nice looking tool:

I saw something similar built on top of Ian Coleman'a bip 39 tool the other day, allowing for a quick check of addresses on common/custom derivation paths, but I can't seem to find it now. Anyone have a link to that?

Found a math-rock band called 'Trying Science', the first track on this album is called 'Bitcoin & Chill':

Following along with CSW's scammy blunders is hitting all time highs in terms of entertainment value. Most recently, he has apparently claimed ownership of an address holding coins stolen from Mt Gox, via 'proof of letter from a law firm' 😂

I can't wait until this is all turned into some sort of documentary/comedy, what a tale.

There is something funny about seeing these giant numbers typed out, it just become kinda nonsensical and difficult to follow compared to the same calculation done on smaller numbers (or at least, in that notation it is). See Pieter's answer:
